Two Blocks are Better Than One by Pepper Cory

Two Blocks are Better Than One is a technique class that brings out the designer in you. Especially good for those who are tired of repetitive cutting or anyone who bores easily! Two Blocks is based loosely on Pepper’s groundbreaking design book Crosspatch (still found used on Amazon or ebay but book is not necessary for the class). If you’re ready to move beyond quilts with look-alike blocks, this is a great first step in the original design process. Kit is $5 and includes patterns, graphs, and template plastic if needed. Students need to bring to class a small selection of sharpened colored pencils, scissors and rotary cutter with new blade /mat/ruler 6 x 12. Fabrics: a wide selection of fabrics in colors you love (and bring at least one you hate and don’t know what to do with!)–try for at least  eight FQ’s (2-3 yds total). Include some solids, geometrics, prints, stripes.Do not bring fabrics all from the same designer or exclusively batiks. Mix it up! Don’t stress over fabric choice–this is a class project.
